Nokia has already sent Symbian to the graveyard, yet the mobile platform is still alive and kicking in the memory of those who had the chance to use it when nothing else was available on the smartphone market.
When compared to Android, iOS or the new Windows Phone 8 platforms, Symbian is clearly lacking a lot of features and capabilities, yet some still dream of it reborn.
Sanjaya Kanishka is one of the people who believes that Symbian might have had something more to offer, given the chance.
The Nokia N10 concept device that Sanjaya came up with a few days ago appears meant to prove that a great UI might have saved the aging mobile operating system.
But that’s not all, since the high-end hardware packed inside the concept phone also helps it prove more appealing than the average Symbian device would appear.
The handset sports a 4.3" LED backlit IPS TFT screen capable of delivering a 720x1280 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 342ppi, while being protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 2.
Furthermore, the device sports a 2.0GHz dual-core Cortex-A15 processor (a TI OMAP 5), with PoverVR G6630 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
The specs list of the concept phone also includes 16GB of internal memory, hot-swappable micro SD card, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Hotspot, NFC, DLNA, 4G LTE connectivity, and the like.
On the back, the Nokia N10 sports a 12-megapixel photo snapper with support for full JD video recording, complemented by a front camera for making video calls.
Other features of the mobile device would include Dolby Mobile Sound Enhancement, as well as a 2700mAh Li-ion battery and wireless charging capabilities.
The concept phone runs under the Symbian Donna operating system, which was rumored to arrive on devices sometime last year, but which was never actually launched.
It’s highly unlikely that Nokia would actually plan the release of such a device, yet that doesn’t mean that users cannot continue dreaming of it.
